Damn.,.

Well i've had acne for 4 years now. all Through out Jr High and now the first year of high school. It really really sucks. I play lots of basketball and I mean its getting to the point where I dont even want to go the gym to practice anymore. I've missed a billion parties this past year, dates with some girls etc. What bugs me even more is that I know im a pretty decent looking guy if I didnt have acne. I have literally tried everything that isnt presccribed, including proactiv and the regimen. I said I would give it until the end of the month until to be clearing up or else I would see a derm. So looks like im headed to the derm.

Sorry to hear about your luck Nightro. I once considered myself a good looking guy too. Sometimes I think if it wasn't for acne I could have wound up to be too cocky. You mentioned that you tried every type of OTC topical avaliable. I'm curious how healthy your body is on the inside though. How is your diet? Do you eat a lot of sugar, bread, processed foods? What kind of sleep are you getting? You mentioned you're an athlete, do you use whey protein, creatine, or other supplements?
